    Seems like Lopez hits everywhere he goes. I assume he’s got a utility guy ceiling in MLB?

    • ClevelandRedsFan

      Does he have legit everyday MLB potential? I never heard of him until he started hitting .400+

  2. DaveCT

    Ashcraft. 76 pitches, 54 strikes.

    It’d be great if this kid took off push the guys above hime.

    • MK

      Think one of the most positive highlights from last night is Graham having just one walk. Hopefully that is a preview of what is to come. With his velocity if he can harness the control he could become quite the prospect.

  3. DaveCT

    Is TJ Hopkins becoming a legit CF prospect?

    Siani is struggling, though it’s quite possible his offensive problems ate related to being hurt.

    As some point Siani needs an uptick in offense. Otherwise he’s Billy Hamilton, not that that is terrible.

    Senzel is still the top younger guy.
    Maybe hurtebise, or Cerda steps up. Friedl is a 4th OF, same with Payton.

  4. Norwood Nate

    There’s bound to be a lot of surprises this season without the normal development curve most players experience year to year after losing all of the 2020 season.

    One of the guys that have stood out to me so far:
    Leonardo Rivas – I kind of forgot we also acquired a minor leaguer in the Iglesias deal. After not hitting for much in 2019 at the offensively juiced Cal-league, he’s really done well with the jump to AA. 14 BBs vs 14 Ks and 6 SB vs 3 CS. Speed, on-base ability, good contact skills. Playing all over the infield and outfield right now. Could be a nice utility/bench option in the future.

  5. Michael B Green

    Wasn’t Lodolo scheduled to pitch in AA yesterday? Promotion?

    • Beard

      I thought he was scheduled too, but I believe he left his last start with a blister issue so he may have some lingering effects.

      • MK

        Need to pull out the old Nolan Ryan blister trick of soaking hand in pickle brine. Of course modern approaches don’t back that treatment. But Ryan did all right.

  6. Brad

    I’d rather see prospect types rather than the AAAA guys:
    Barrero/Alf Rod for Freeman
    Friedl for Heinemann

    • RojoB

      Except you know if they get called up that the manager won’t play them. Plus for 2 of those they need 40-player roster spots
